Marquette rolls past South Dakota 93-68


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Lazar Hayward had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead Marquette to a 93-68 victory on Tuesday night over South Dakota for its 24th straight non-conference home win.

Darius Johnson-Odom added 18 points and Jimmy Butler 13 for the Golden Eagles (4-0), who improved to 4-0 against the Coyotes in the first game between the two schools since the 1967-68 season.

Tyler Cain, the Great West Conference's preseason player of the year, scored 19 points for South Dakota (2-3), which is in its second year playing in Division I.

The Coyotes will become a full-fledged member of The Summit League beginning in 2011.
